Raise your EatQ and bridge the gap between what you know and what you do

If you would like to receive an invitation to the EatQ class that starts next month, please sign up here and get your free mindful eating checklist: http://bit.ly/1wbfQY9

In this 8-week class, you’ll learn the key to raising your Eat.Q.: the capacity to take a mindful pause—just long enough to make a healthy decision, rather than an emotionally driven one— and how to make a decision that serves you best. You’ll also learn some core tools to help you make a sound decision at the moment it counts.

04.Oct.14 WOD

I’m going to start biasing the WODs for running, which I like a lot. Every fall I race at least once a month. I have registered (but not sufficiently trained) for a half marathon in Amsterdam in a few weeks. I will likely drop back to the 8 k – all the fun, none of the pain.

I also have registered for the CF Endurance program in May.  So I have some prep and mobility work for that too. Like double-unders. I did 20 the other day, stitched into about 150 singles.

WOD 3.Oct.14

A big shout out to my little brother, who turns 49 today.

Today’s Main Site Workout is a Hero, which typically honors a solider killed in combat. For the rest of us, the Workout means to kill us.

Here’s two scaled versions. Pick your poison.

2=>16 x 100-meter shuttle sprints
2=>16 hang squat clean thrusters or hang power clean-front squat-thrusters, 25#-35#/15#-25# dumbbells (lbs.)

(Convert to KG here)

or

1=>8 x 100-meter shuttle sprints
1=>8 hang power clean-front squat-thrusters, 25#-35#/15#-25# dumbbells

Let’s translate.  Shuttle sprints: mark 100 meters, run back and forth 4 times as fast as you can.

For the hang power clean – look here. Get two dumbbells up by your collar bones/shoulders (“cleaned”), then do a front squat and power up to a thruster.  Look here.  This is one fluid movement.

Basically, this one sucks.
